TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 40-year-old man is being held on $1 million bond in the death of a Topeka developer.

Monroe Eugene Lockhart III, 40, was charged Friday with first-degree murder in the death of Corey M. Brown, 39. Lockhart's $1 million bond was set Monday.

Lockhart also faces a felony arson charge in Shawnee County, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported (http://is.gd/aWIjWa ). Lockhart already was serving a nearly 10-year sentence for a home invasion when he was charged in Brown's death.

Defense attorney Linda Eckelman said Tuesday she wouldn't comment on the case.

Prosecutors said last week that Brown was shot in January 2012 on the grounds of White Lakes Mall before his body was moved to Douglas County. The arson charge is tied to the burning of Lockhart's car. Brown was manager of Hudson Crossing properties, a developer of Hudson Crossing, and vice president of J&J Developers.

Lockhart and Brown had been friends and business partners.

A Douglas County Underwater Search and Recovery Team on Monday was searching Lake Shawnee for evidence tied to Brown's shooting.
